In a recent interview with Hot 97‘s Ebro, The Roots frontman revealed that the collab, which is more than 10 years in the making, will most likely be his next release following Streams of Thought Vol. 3: Cane and Abel — his latest full-length. “And though it’s something that’s probably gonna drop in the middle of all these Streams Of Thought volumes, since it’s something that we began the initial idea maybe 13 or 14 years ago, I don’t consider it to be part of that same series,” he explained. “So, it’s not gonna be like Streams Of Thought Vol. 4 is the Danger Mouse volume. It’s a standalone joint. And it’s an album, it’s a full-on album.”
He also described the album as “a return for [Danger Mouse] to hip-hop and to sampling in this way.” Black Thought continued, “It’s a feel-good record. It’s a record for people who got into hip-hop and sort of evolved at the same period of time that we did. We’re the elder statesmen at this point, so I feel like this record is reflective of that too.”
Stay tuned for more updates on the exciting collab.
